Day two of Chicago Fireworks, this time viewed from the top of Marina City's West Tower. The Chicago fireworks (at Navy Pier and Grant Park in unison) started early this year, and they didn't last too long. What was really amazing about the view was seeing all the fireworks shows out in the suburbs that kept going through the night, long after the Chicago shows finished. The suburbs must have a larger budget ;)

That top shot is trippy. It reminded me of the Hubble Deep Field image.

I really like the first photo, for a fireworks shot, it's really unique.. I find it amusing to see mini fireworks from those other suburbs..
